Review

Butterfly constantly offers volunteers the opportunity to get involved in one or many of more than a dozen diverse projects, including a primary school, nursery school, permaculture school gardens, information room & media center, environmental demonstrations, youth club, HIV group, disabled group and others.

The owners of Butterfly, Josie and Alice, are always helpful, fun and willing to explain all opportunities and provide suggestions of how you can get involved. It is a great feeling to give swimming lessons for the local children or help out in one of the schools, and as such really contributing to the future of these young Malawians.

When you're not working, there's the bar and lounge area to hang out, read a book or relax. You can rent kayaks on-site and explore the lake or take the snorkel and glasses for a swim in the bay. Nkhata Bay village is just a 15 minutes stroll away and has many local stores to explore as well. Nkhata Bay is a really quiet little village and the local nightlife is well-worth exploring.

I absolutely recommend to spend one or many months at Butterfly, having a great time for yourself while helping and volunteering there at the same time.
